What’s the difference between used and CPO?

Our Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) models are the top-tier vehicles within our used inventory. These CPO vehicles are in a league of their own, due to the strict standards they’re held to by us and the manufacturer. Used vehicles must meet strict age and mileage requirements in order to join the ranks of our exceptional CPO models, and they also must pass a 125-point inspection. Once they receive the coveted stamp of approval, they’ll officially earn the title of Certified Pre-Owned. When you buy CPO, you’ll get to enjoy a plethora of fantastic benefits. This includes a factory-backed 7-year or 100,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty and 3-month or 3,000-mile Maximum Care Coverage. The perks don’t stop there — rest easy with a complimentary CARFAX® Vehicle History Report™ and 24-hour towing and roadside assistance. What’s not to love about our CPO lineup?

What is good mileage on a used car?

Unfortunately, this answer isn’t cut and dry, however many modern vehicles can last a very long time before they’re considered “undriveable”. Thanks to ever-evolving powertrain technology, many new models can stick around up until the 200,000-mile threshold — maybe even up to 300,000 miles! Again, make sure you conduct your own research into the particular make and model you’re eyeing since the average longevity will differ among brands.

How do I know that I’m getting a good deal?

You’ll always get a great deal when you shop at Griffin Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM Tifton! Nonetheless, we still recommend that you conduct research into the current market before you sign the dotted line. Utilize reputable sources like Kelley Blue Book® or Edmundsand gather accurate estimates of a model’s value. However, keep in mind that these prices can change every month due to the fluctuating market, so stay as up-to-date as you can. Don’t forget to use our online trade appraisal tool to also get an accurate quote on your current ride — then you can trade it in and save on your next purchase!
